This Black History Month I took part in an amazing series called HerStory in Black. Emily Mills of How She Hustles, brought together 150 Black women leaders from across the city of Toronto for a special photoshoot to celebrate our stories as a part of Canada’s 150. Not only was this such a fun experience- it also was such an inspiring one as well. I stood in a room as Black women I had watched on television, or read about in magazines came together to create images that show that we too are a part of Canada’s history- scratch- HERstory!
As a part of HerStory CBC aired a segment that showcased me (Eden Hagos) stopping by some of my favourite places to eat in Toronto. Not only do these restaurants create awesome food but also are a great snapshot of the awesome Black chefs, restaurants, cuisines, food photographers etc that we seek to highlight on the Black Foodie platform! Scroll down to find out more about all the dope people and places I chose to join me in this Black Foodie segment!
Get your caribbean grub on downtown at Tony’s fast casual restaurant Street Shak. My favourite on the menu is definitely their fish cakes and bakes!
Yes! We do have chicken and waffles in Canada too! Chef Adrian Forte brought his flavour to Canada and has us hooked on his chicken and waffles, my suggestion- get the ODB!
French Chef Jean Regis cooks up delicious French food at his restaurant Le Baratin. For our segment he cooked up a special oxtail sheppherds pie! It was amazing!
Ify is a master at food photography and her agency bring food to life on screen. Here’s a snapshot of a collaboration she did with Black Foodie that was featured in the segment!
